Paid Restaurant Reservation App Lets Diners Cut The Line
Resy lets people buy tickets for "premium tables" at restaurants.
More often than not, getting a reservation at a popular restaurant can be quite a challenge and sometimes even a real pain. Sometimes it takes several phone calls to land a reservation, and you have to book weeks in advance just to even get a seat.
Entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk partnered up with CrowdTwist co-founder Mike Montero and Eater co-founder Ben Leventhal to create an app called Resy, which basically lets users pay for a reservation at a restaurant they want.
Instead of tying up the phone lines trying to get that restaurant reservation or waiting for weeks to finally try that new place, users just pay for the table they want and when they want it. The concept is almost like buying a ticket to eat at that specific establishment.
